   Dear Boris,
I received the walking cane you made the other day and I am pleased beyond words!
I put the walking cane handle in my hand and it seemed as though you had me in your shop
to measure my hand for the handle, it fits so well to my hand it it quite unbelievable...
you are an outstanding and wonderful artist and craftsman.
The walking cane makes me feel absolutely steady and fast when I walk...the balance is perfect.
The cane is nothing less than perfection.
I cannot thank you enough, and it was worth every cent I paid for you to craft this for me.
I would recommend you to anyone and you should be considered a fine artist.
Thank you so much, you are truly gifted. You have made my ability
to walk so much more easy, and I am proud to have your work in my hand.
 Sincerely,   Sandra L. Hacker

The cane arrived. Let me just say that I went through a lot of web sites
on custom made walking canes and walking sticks before I selected yours.
All I can say at this point is...
    WOW!
    I did not make a mistake. It is perfect,
fantastic and better than I could ever have hoped for.
Every part of it. You do fantastic and excellent work and I greatly appreciate it.
It could not have been better. Thank you!

Hi Boris,
    I've had a look at the new designs--very nice.
If I ever need another walking cane, I will most definately come back to you! My
"Wolf" cane attracts lots of admiration.

    Hope all is well,
    Kind Regards

 Hi,
I have just received the walking cane.  Thanks to  the efficiency of the UK postal system there was a bit of a delay! 
I am very, very pleased with it.  I am a funeral director and the the walking cane is very much a part  of the English funereal tradition
It is really good to be able to find a cane that is unique, and this certainly fills the bill!   
I am looking forward to 'stepping out' with it this week.
I will forward to you a photo of the walking cane at work for your appreciation, in due course.
    Thanks again for your efficiency in processing this order.  
    Best regards,
    Mike.

    I bought a Neiman Marcus Butterfly walking cane (#146 SEG) about 3 years ago and the tip is wearing out. 
It is such a beautiful cane that I hate to just put some ugly rubber tip on it. 
Is it possible to buy some of these rubber tips from you so that I will not have to worry about it wearing out again and yet have a quality rubber tip available to replace the worn one.  
Please let me hear from you. 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Dear Boris,
It;s outstanding!  and beautiful.   Again, Thanks.

     Mr. Palatnik,
    I purchased one of your wolf head canes last December. It arrived in mid-January in beautiful condition.
I absolutely love this cane, as does everyone else who sees it.
The walking cane is the wolf head model in sterling silver with a black ebony shaft.
I am wondering what I should do to keep it as beautiful as it currently is. I don't know what to use on either the shaft or the head to preserve them.
Could you advise my about this? I would certainly appreciate any advise you could give me.
    Thanks for the wonderful walking cane and the advise,

    Hello Boris
Just to let you know that the Walking cane has arrived. Thank you for the effort and craftsmanship put in to the peace.
It is a pleasure to own and well worth the wait.
I’ll not hesitate to recommend your work.
    Best regards

    Hello Boris,
 Thank you very much for an outstanding piece of artwork! My Wife loves it and so doesn’t everyone else I have showed it to. I am very happy with it!
I am wondering if you could sell me a dozen rubber cane tips. If so, you can just charge the credit card you have on file and send them.
If not, could you please tell me where I may find some and how much I should expect to pay.
I have gone through many in the past, as I put a lot of weight on my walking cane, due to my spinal condition.  Please let me know.
    THANKS AGAIN,
    Vito A. Foti Jr.

  Dear Boris,

I received my walking cane late this afternoon, right on time, and all I can say is, "WOW!" It looks and feels FANTASTIC! 
The height, weight, and balance is perfect, and everything we'd agreed upon is as exactly as you said!  T
he ebony wood is beautifuI, the blend of the 24K Gold and German Silver on the Elephant is excellent,
it fits in the palm of my hand perfectly, and the sword itself is a precision instrument. 
I immediately took it out to the local store, and had barely walked inside, before a man walked up to inquire about, and compliment me on it. 
I will use it for the next couple of months, at least, while recovering from my surgery, and I will treasure it as a family heirloom for years to come. 
Furthermore, I will continue to use it when I reach an older age that requires such a walking cane.  I couldn't be more pleased!  Thank you for this fine piece of true art.
 
     Sincerely,

    Eric D. Everest

   Hello Boris,
Just to let you know that the walking cane arrived with me today. Thanks very much, I am very pleased with it. Best regards from Gary.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------   
    Hi Boris,
 
Thank you very much for the walking cane which was absolutely beautiful.
 Is it possible to get a longer rubber tip as the cane is slightly shorter than the one I'm using at the moment.
 Many thanks.
 
    Regards
    Tony Warren

 Boris,
My walking cane arrived today.  It is beautiful, and I can really feel how well balanced it is. 
Your work is spectacular, and I am sure I have another walking cane from you in my near future.  Probably more. 
I have one minor problem, I would say it is about 1+1/2  inches too long. 
My arm is bent more than a comfortable amount.  Is this something you would be able to adjust? 
I would not dare myself!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------  
I have received both walking canes, and they are beautiful.
i was wondering since i will probably be using the sterling silver/ ebony wood cane, about upkeep.
what should i use if i should scuff the wood by accident?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
     Hi Boris,

    I remain very pleased with my walking cane - thank you!
Could I order, please, another one, same length, same handle (snail) but in
rosewood, with German silver handle, in three pieces, for travelling? 
Whatwould the price be?
    Thanks,   Richard
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Boris, I received my walking stick today and wanted to let you know

Hello, Mr. Palatnik;
 
I received the walking cane and I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the beautiful piece of art you’ve made; it far exceeded my expectation. 
In the future, I hope we can call upon you for another custom made walking cane.  And, of course, your excellent service is most appreciated.
 With kindest regards,
  Kayhan Koleini
 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
   Mr. Palatnik, your excellent piece of art arrived as committed. 
I can't express how satisfied I feel with the quality of your "Tiger" walking cane. 
Immediately when I took it in my hands there was a strange link connection with it.  
Although not in the need of one, I collect canes as a hobby and this is the best one I have; so far. 
It is not only the perfect balance of the walking cane's overall design, but the grace of the handle's grip is second to none. 
I'm totally pleased with this purchase and look forward to add more of your art to my collection in the future. 
Also, thank you much for your quick delivery as well as using the United States Postal Service; best courier you could've possibly selected.
 
     Sincerely,
 
    Joe Bejar, Architect/Eng.

     Boris,
    Your work is truly art.  Thank you for making our Christmas very special. 
Your cougar with rosewood walking cane is now treasured by someone who also is an artisan. 
When he opened the gift, his eyes glowed and he said, "this is a jewel".
Best wishes to you and your family for Health and Artistic Happiness in 2008.

    With great appreciation,

    Dear Boris,
 My wolf walking cane arrived the other day. I was very excited to see the package when I came home.
 The first time I visited your site and read customer testimonials, most were from people who had purchased them
 as collectables and not as assistance devices. Mine is for daily use.
 After reading about how they were constructed and speaking to you,
 I felt fairly confident that they were more than up to this practical task.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
    When I opened the box I was surprised at first due to the unexpected finish of the African Ebony.
I knew that we’d agreed upon this, but for some reason I was still envisioning the rosewood. I was however not the least bit disappointed.
The walking cane is an extremely beautiful work of art. I’ve had the opportunity to walk a few times with my new walking cane and was very pleased.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
    It definitely seems more than adequate for my 300 lbs. I was surprised at how sturdy it really is.
The 39” length is perfect and after a couple of walks the Wolf head handle has become quite comfortable.
I haven’t had the need to rap any unfriendly dogs on the snot yet, but I am confident that it will hold up nicely.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
The only problem with it is that it’s so beautiful I’m almost afraid to use it, but I know it will last a lifetime and with a little maintenance and should look just as good as it does now.
Once again thanks Boris. You are a true artisan.
 
    Sincerely,
    Scott Hill

    Dear Mr Palatnik
The "Cougar" walking cane arrived today as promised.  I am now the proud owner of five of your canes, all silver and ebony, and all superlative works of art. 
The Cougar, once again, is a masterwork of unique design and aesthetic line.  Congratulations on a wonderful achievement. 
My problem now is which walking cane for which day. 
Obviously,  I will have to save-up to buy two more of your creations so that each day of the week will be covered and I will be relieved of lengthy indecision and lost time.
Thank you again for all the pleasure you have provided through your art.

    Dear Mr. Palatnik,
 
 I would like to take the time to thank you again for great workmanship that you put into the three Wolf walking canes that I purchased from you at the beginning of last year. 
They have & still are serving my needs very well.  I have several people admire them because of their uniqueness.
I did name each one of them after my three Siberian Husky's!
 
    Thanks again,  Brian McDougle

    Dear Mr. Palatnik,
    I just wanted to thank you for the two walking canes that I have purchased
from you. They are beautiful works of functional art. Every time I use one
of them, I receive more and more compliments. I'm looking forward to
ordering my next piece. They have a wonderful balance, and the silver work
is superb. The fit in my hands is amazingly comfortable. I originally
purchased them just to collect, but I just can't help taking them out and
using them to walk with.

    Thank you very much.

    Dear Mr. Palatnik,
 
I am writing to tell you how much my husband appreciates the beautiful walking cane you made for him in December. 
It was ordered as a Christmas gift - he had admired your work for some time and I thought it was his turn to own one of your pieces. 
Thank you for the time you put into this work of art - it will be a treasure for years to come.

    Dear Boris,
 
I have received my most fabulous piece of art work ever, the precision craftsmanship and balance of every detail is most exquisite,
I have never been so happy to receive an item bought that has come in ten times its beauty then pictured on the web,
Boris I truly believe that the good Lord has gifted you with the talent of monsignor for sure a Picasso,
working with the precision and harmony as the Maestro,  Monsignor, Mechanic of the cane producer,
thank you for a gift rather then a purchase for I believe that you have given me a gift, where I am at this time in my life!!!
has given me a birds eye view of the beauty that is out there and the wonderful people you can come across in this very short life time,
thank you once more for the wonderful experience of "COUGAR IN THE TREE"

    Hi Boris,
I've just received my Walking cane cougar and it is beautiful! What a fine art! Thank you so much for the extra tips.
I also have a question. I bought a lioness from you last year. It looks great, but here in Florida there is lots of humidity
and from my hand the wood, rosewood, around the lioness, it got a little dull.
What can I use on the wood to bring the "shine" back. It is not a real shine, but get the "life" back into it, so it looks like new?
 
    Thanks again
    Amanda Devine
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I just wanted to send you a short note to tell you how impressed I am with the workmanship on the walking cane I ordered.  T
he Sterling silver and Gold finish on the Cougar Can is even more impressive than on the photos on your web site. 
I get a lot of compliments from strangers who stop to admire it.  I look forward to many years of pleasure using it and want to thank you again.

    Dear Boris:
I have just received my walking cane, and it is a fantastic thing.  When I received it, I was at the Post Office. 
The place was full of people; and, since the package was damaged, I insisted on opening it right there. 
The postal employees and the others who were there for mail, were treated to a complete review of my walking cane, as well as a critique of your art work. 
Your work received a lot of raves.
    Thank you so much, Boris.
    Best regards, Don Belveal

It performed perfectly.
It was well worth the wait.  Thanks.

    Hi,

I've just received a phone call from my grandfather in South Korea, and he said that he loves the lily walking cane!
Thank you for the beautiful work!

Best regards,

Boris,
I received the walking canes / staff. They are very nice. Thanks.
What is the best price you can give me on ordering two more.
I am interested in the two tone cougar walking cane for my wife who is ~ 5'7" tall #132SE with 16" sword, ebony.
I would want one mid section like you made for the two I ordered already. But this mid section would convert the walking cane to a hiking staff for a person 5'7" tall.
I would want the sections we have already received to work on this walking cane / shaft. I would also want a bear hiking staff for a person 5'7" tall.
This would also have a 16" sword, 230SE#231SE, ebony. Again this would need to be compatible with the all the others.
I would also like to know how much it would cost to get an additional 230SE#231SE bull, ebony, 16" sword section only.
Will the release mechanisms get loose over time? What should I use on the ebony wood to clean or protect it? What about the sterling silver?

The walking cane was delivered yesterday, and it is MAGNIFICENT!
Thank you very much for your beautiful work, and I'm pretty sure I will
be ordering a couple more of them before Christmas.

    Dear Sir: Recently I received two beautiful deer antler-topped walking canes. I would like to display these items on the wall of my dining room.
What I have in mind is an arrangement whereby the two sticks are affixed to the wall parallel to one another and horizontally arranged.
I have searched the web for some type of device that will securely hold these items but yet allow them to be removed from time to time for cleaning (and closer inspection by guests).
I noticed your beautiful canes on the web and I thought that you might have some idea as to where I might obtain the type of wall mount to which I am referring.
Might I prevail upon you for some help?
Thanking you in advance I am

    Hi Boris,

The walking cane was finally released from the UK Customs last Thursday and delivered on Saturday.

I would just like to say that the walking cane is just perfect, the frog adds a nice dimension to a well balanced walking cane.
My wife was absolutely delighted with the walking cane and the size was spot on, she asked me to send her thanks to you for such a beautiful walking cane.

    Once again thanks.
    Kind regards
    Trevor
----------------------------------------------------------
    Boris,
The walking cane was delivered today and I was thrilled.  Let's work toward another one for my collection.  I like the aligator/rosewood/round staff cane. 
Could you help me to remember the overall length for the elelphant walking cane? I might go a half inch shorter. 
I'm also interested in a quotational breakdown to add the 16 inch sword and conversion to the alligator. 
 
    I'm very appreciative of your work,
 
    Lee
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Hi Boris,
The Walking cane arrived today and I am very pleased. You do really nice work.
Could I buy a couple of extra rubber tips...they are quite unique so I thought I should try and get them from you ?
Also, should I coat the blade with a thin film of oil or vaseline to avoid rust ?
    Thank you,
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Boris Dennis Crouch here. I received my walking cane and you did a great job thanks.
    Have a happy Fathers Day

    Dear Sir,   Just wanted you to know that my Walking Cane came yesterday & again I am extremely pleased. 
I made a wall mount that holds my 3 walking canes when not using them - these I only use when I go out of the house.       
 Again I thank you for your fine works of art.

    Dear Boris,
 
Thank you!  My father's gift arrived yesterday (for presentation in a few days during his surprise birthday luncheon) and your Cougar
on The Tree Walking Cane is more magnificent than anticipated. I know he will be very pleased and I can't thank you enough for your
excellent response. Sincerely, Sharon
------------------------------------------------------
    Dear Boris,
I received my new cougar-handled walking cane a few days ago.  It
hasn't been out of my hand since. 
You are a fine artist as well as a master craftsman.
    The lion cane was my favorite of your designs.  I took a big
tom out in New Mexico a couple of years ago after a week
long hunt.  They are awesome creatures.

    I can't wait to show my best friend: he's a Penn State
graduate who's mascot is the Nittany Lion.  He'll want
one!

    By the way, do you recommend any particular maintenance or
    care for the wood or silver?

                                  Sincerely,
                                    John Lunsford MD
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
        Happy New Year! 
I got my new walking cane a few days ago and I must say...it is the finest walking cane I have ever seen and the best one I now own! 
The balance is incredible and the cougar figurine is just beautful! 
This cane has become my constant companion, one that I hope will be with me for many years to come!
Thanks again..your work is truly wonderful!
------------------------------------------------------------------
    Dear Mr. Palatnik,
 
I just received my stunning Sterling Silver Lion Head Ebony walking cane.  WOW!!!! Its worth every penny. 
I’m thoroughly impressed with it in every regard.  It’s a piece of art in my opinion.  The quality and craftsmanship are beyond compare. 
I searched long and hard for a product like this and what I received from you is nothing short of a piece of art! I’m so very happy with it I could almost burst. 
Lots of places will sell you a pre made walking stick or cane but you made mine special order and that makes it unique to say the least. 
I feel quite privileged to be in possession of such a fine accoutrement. 
Thank you very much Mr. Palatnik for your craftsmanship and attention to detail and especially your customer service. 
I’ll certainly pass along your name to any and all who inquire about my fine walking cane.
 
    Sincerely,
  
   Richard Ramjattan.
    Ps. Feel free to post my comments in your testimonial section should you choose to do so.

    Hello Boris:
 
 I hope that all is well with you and you family.  I have absolutely loved my walking cane and get many compliments. 
People are asking me if it will be available on your website and I do not know what to tell them.
 Please let me know so that I can at least publicize your talents in my area of the country.
 
 My Best To You And Your Family Boris,

    Thank you for the great pics. you are very talented .I myself do painting conservation and restoration,
But I love to begin making enameling ,gold and silver work .A dear friend of mine from the country of Georgia is very talented at this and wood carving,
he is going to work on a very famous crucifix soon.
 
I like the cane in the middle of the three you should me. I will talk it over with my sister, the hook on the back of the handle would make it easier for mother to grip.
Thank you again, Look forward to talking with you,

My "Cougar on the Tree" walking cane arrived today and I want to tell you how extremely pleased I am with it.  Your work is phenomenal.  The sterling handle casting with the gold plating accent is spectacular.  The shaft finish retains the natural beauty of the Rosewood.  You are a great artist!

Mr. Palatnik,

Thank you so much for fashioning the Taurus for me.
It is a beautiful piece of work.  It is functional,
stylish, and a pleasure to hold. 
I know that on your site you stated that you use a beeswax finish on your
walking canes.  If I wish to renew the finish, what
should I use?  Thank you again.

Sincerely,
Mathew Severson

The craftsmanship is admired by all who’ve seen it!  Seldom have I been so pleased as when I admired the walking cane for the first time.  
I was truly awe struck as it emerged from the shipping container.
I am interested in purchasing the “jaguar” in about three months. 
As per the cost, what would the fee be for; the cane shaft in the same solid black ebony, the jaguar in sterling and the handle in gold plating? 
Do you offer solid, pure, silver on the jaguar?

    My father just received the ebony walking cane with the sterling silver cougar. 
He said it was absolutely beautiful and he loved it!!  He does not like having to use a walking cane but with this one, it will be a much nicer experience for him.  
Your workmanship is excellent and I can't wait to see it.  Thank you very much.  Lynne Lovinger

    Hello Boris:
 
A few minutes ago the postman came and delivered to me my two beautiful walking canes that you made.  I cannot explain how beautiful they are and how much I appreciate your hard and dedicated work in providing to me the walking cane that I requested.  I hope that now that you have a mold for the crucifix that maybe more individuals will enjoy it as well.  You are truly blessed and have a wonderful talent.
 
My best to you always Boris.  Again many thanks.
 
God Bless You,
 
Bob

    Hello, Boris.    
The walking cane arrived this afternoon.  
It is so beautifully crafted, and the length fits me just fine.   I'm very pleased with it.  
 
    Thank you.              Mort Berenstein.

    Hello Boris:
 
The walking cane is beautiful.  I will leave the decision of the gold tones to you as you are a very talented artist and I trust your decision. 
I hope that you will have future orders for this crest as you have done an exceptional job.
Is the length of the cane 38 or 39"?  Either will be fine.
Also, you have a gold and silver toned cougar cane on your website. 
I would like that as well on ebony with a sword handle in either a 38 or 39" lenth.  Is that available?
Let me know the total that I would owe you on both and I will get it sent to you.
My Best To You Boris.  It has been a pleasure working with you.

    Dear Boris,
 
'Cougar in tree' arrived and is beyond my expectation. It is without doubt a
wonderful work of art and when not in use it rests in pride of place in our
hallstand to be admired by all who visit us. In fact one of my
granddaughters (15 yrs) is taking it to school next week to show her class.
Thank you Boris - I shall treasure it always.
Sincerely,

    Dear Boris,

Greetings. The walking cane arrived and it is beautiful.
I was curious where did you learn your craft?
 
----------------------------------------------------------
    Mr. Palatnik,

This is Akira Hirashima in Japan.

Your walking cane (butterfly) is arrived last Sunday.
I am surprised because its arrival is earlier than I expected.
It is very beautiful. More beautiful than I saw on your web page.
Holding is very easy. I love it and cherish it.

Thank you very much.

    Today, I received my crafted "Egyptian Lion" walking cane.

I am pleased and impressed:  a finer walking cane has never found my hand.  Its
quality and balance exceed my exceptions significantly.

This is a piece of craftsmanship that will grace my side for long years, and I
hope to pass it into the hand of future generations.

I short, I will certainly recommend your work to any who admire this fine walking cane.

    Boris: The walking canes were picked up this morning and they are fabulous!...
the work, the wood, the fitting, the casting, the sculpture of the silver pommels is really world-class....
I will wear them , on occasions with great pride and great pleasure...they were at the P.O> Dec.23rd, however because of the Holidays....received them this A.M. 
...there was no duty, taxes charged because you marked "Samples"...they had not been opened, either,
so I will wait for another time , soon to order two more of your great walking canes....Regards, Paul Herriott

    My Dear Mr Palatnik~
 
my name is Frankie Knuckles.  I received one of your walking canes (The Egyptian Lion) from my brother, Frederick Dunson. 
I  want you to know how thrilled I am to have it.
Your artistry and craftsmanship is absolutely exquisite.  Brilliant!  Magnificent!  And i'm so proud to own it. 
 
As a collector of art (on a small but, pure level), I love being able to add your walking cane to my collection. 
i'm almost afraid to use it on a  daily basis.  But the artistry and craftsmanship is so beautiful,
i'd be a fool to not carry it for all the world to see.
 
Many, many thanks.  It's nice to know that someone of your brilliance still exist in this otherwise crazy and
sometimes ugly world we live in today.  I'll be in touch.
 
 Frankie Knuckles
 
    ps~ If you have a recent picture and a bio of yourself, I would love to read and learn more about you.  Again, many thanks.
